History of QVIUS

In the fall of 1972, Dr. Arthur J. Garrow formulated the basic concepts for a school of chiropractic that would bring to the profession, doctors of high quality, who were free from the limitations of academic bias. Arthur J. Garrow, D.C. was the founding president of the University of Pasadena. At the time, he was maintaining a private practice and serving on the faculty of another local chiropractic college in Los Angeles.

The university officially opened its doors and began instruction of a Doctorate of Chiropractic Program in February 1974. The fundamental mission of the University of Pasadena was to be a functional center for higher learning. The University was initially intended to have a number of colleges teaching an array of subjects from a functional standpoint, and producing students who were well grounded in the functional philosophy of Life, Health and Healing.

The name of the institution was officially changed to The Pasadena College of Chiropractic in September 1977. In 1989, the Board of Trustees of the school voted to change the school's name from Pasadena College of Chiropractic to the Southern California College of Chiropractic.

In November 1994, Dr. Edwin C. Floyd, a graduate of the initial University of Pasadena and founding President of the International College of Homeopathy was named President of Southern California College of Chiropractic. Dr. Floyd returned to his alma mater with a plan to reintroduce the university system that was the initial mission of the school. Dr. Floyd changed the name of the Southern California College of Chiropractic to Quantum University and began reforming the school of chiropractic into a university system anchored in the academics of Natural Medicine and Functional Medical science.

In April of 1996, Quantum University graduated its last few remaining chiropractic students and ceased operation of the school of chiropractic, bringing to an end over 25 years of producing well trained doctors of chiropractic. International College of Homeopathy continued in the spirit of training functional physicians by teaching Classical Homeopathy to healthcare professionals throughout the United States. Dr. Floyd continued to serve as president of the International College of Homeopathy while reforming Quantum University. Dr. David Prescott, a Chiropractor and Attorney at Law, practicing in the state of California was for a brief time a member of the board of Quantum University and then became the school's Vice President of Legal Affairs. Dr. Prescott developed a program for Postgraduate Natural Studies and Functional Medicine. The name of Dr. Prescott's institution was Veritas International University. The purpose of this program was to train doctors in those healing techniques and modalities that are not being taught in the current healthcare schools and colleges. Dr. Prescott requested that his school, be incorporated into the Quantum University system.

On September 8, 1998 fiduciary oversight of Quantum University, the International College of Homeopathy, and the new Veritas International University came under one Board of Trustees. The merging of the these three institutions created what is now Quantum-Veritas International University Systems, which has come to be known and referred to as QVIUS. At the conclusion of the September 8, 1998 meeting, Dr. Floyd was appointed President of QVIUS and given charge of continuing the mission of creating a functional center for higher learning initially started by the University of Pasadena.


The mission of Quantum Veritas International University Systems is to re-establish an awareness of, accurate understanding of, integration of, respect for, and practical application of the indispensable universal laws governing life, health and healing.

We train students in the science and philosophy of those healing arts whose governing principles recognize and respect the indispensable Universal Law. Observation of an immaterial essence expressed through matter is what distinguishes the functional thinkers from the traditional reductionistic thinkers (those that base their reality only on things that can be experienced by the material/physical senses).

Universal laws form the foundation of functional philosophy and its governing principles. Study of the integrated functional healing arts and sciences includes the academic and clinical investigation of the mode by which universal intelligence is transported/transmitted to and through the physical being, thus animating and expressing (life force).
